London (ANI): Led Zepplin are to offer their music online for the first time next month. The Brit band is now following in the footsteps of other big names in the music biz to make their album available online. The band will now make its albums available for download from all online music retailers from November 13.
"We are pleased that the complete Led Zeppelin catalogue will now be available digitally," The Sun quoted guitarist Jimmy Page, as saying in a statement. "The addition of the digital option will better enable fans to obtain their music in whichever manner they prefer," he added. Apart from downloads, Led Zeppelin is also teaming up with mobile provider Verizon Wireless to provide ring tones and full song downloads.
In Sept this year, the band announced that they would be performing a one-off reunion gig on November 26 as a tribute to the late founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun, who signed Led Zeppelin in 1968. Led Zeppelin disbanded in 1980 following the death of drummer John Bonham.
